Linabelle Villarica honored to be Central Luzon deputy speaker
Bulacan 4th District Representative Linabelle Vilarica is now the House deputy speaker for Central Luzon, and she’s overwhelmed by all the support!
“Nakakataba naman ng puso ang inyong mga pagbati! But as your representative, the honor belongs equally to the Marileños, Meycauenyos, Obandeños and Sta. Marians who compose the 4th Congressional District of Bulacan,” said the politiko.
She had replaced Pampanga 2nd District Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who was removed as deputy speaker after the latter voted no to the controversial death penalty bill.
Central Luzon lawmakers then met several times to determine who will be replacing Arroyo.
“Truth to tell, hirap akong i-internalize yung description na 2nd highest official in the House. Your representative now steps into a national office which entails taking up more expansive responsibilities beyond the comfort zone of our District,” said Villarica.
Big shoes to fill, Cong. Linabelle! Pero kayang-kaya mo ‘yan.
